Tampa Bay Florida’s Hemp Mansion; the Guesthouse is a Bud and Breakfast! 

Tampa Bay Florida sits on the west coast of Florida, along the Gulf Coast, which is shared with AL, LA, TX, and Mexico. Tampa Bay metro includes the main cities of: Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater; towns and villages include: Brandon, Largo, and New Port Richey to name a few. In Brandon, FL, there is a beautiful place where cannabis lovers wanting a west coast Florida vacation can book their stay: the Hemp Mansion guesthouse.

This Florida based bud and breakfast is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom guesthouse, with a full kitchen, laundry room, dining room, a screened in back patio, a front and backyard, and access to the amenities at the mansion; like the infinity pool. 

Guests checking into this cannabis friendly guesthouse will be able to spend time with and learn about hemp plants, magnolia trees, bamboo trees, and palm trees; all located on the guesthouse and hemp mansion properties. What seems to be tucked away deep in nature, is actually not, making food, nightlife, and sightseeing easily accessible.

Things to Do Near the Hemp Mansion’s Bud and Breakfast

Vegans, check out the Real Twisted Vegan in Tampa. This is a black woman owned vegan kitchen, whipping up some tasty dishes with affordable prices. Ybor City is a fun place to check out. If Cuba is on your bucket list, then Ybor City will give you a little taste of that; words of advice, leave the chickens alone, they are just roaming around enjoying their day. 

Visiting Tampa Bay means being close to Busch Gardens (a theme park), and places you about an hour and 45 minutes away from the Orlando, Florida theme parks. The gulf coast is about an hour away in Clearwater/St. Petersburg, and if that’s too far, Brandon is closer to beaches like Apollo Beach and bays like Tampa Bay. 

My Experience Staying in the Hemp Mansion’s Bud and Breakfast

I had a marvelous 4 night stay in the cannabis friendly guesthouse. It is decorated beautifully, perfect for groups, the patio makes for an amazing dinner under the stars, the backyard is pure zen for that first smoke of the morning, and there is never a lack of birds singing throughout the day. 

I spent my mornings in the backyard under the palm trees and bamboo trees. I spent late mornings/early afternoons walking around the mansion grounds with no shoes on, spending time with the hemp plants and magnolia trees. I spent my evenings watching the colors in the sky change over the mansion, as the sun left to rest each day.

I smoked in peace; cannabis is allowed indoors, nicotine is not. I even had a small meet and greet with a few of my social media connections. They were amazed at the magic nestled behind the main mansion entrance, and in the little oasis known as the guesthouse. They didn’t expect to meet one of the owners and get a little lesson on the plants, but they did and it was great!


It was an amazing experience full of luxury, learning, relaxation, elevation, tree hugging, rest under shade that the huge hemp plants provided, and nurturing energy.
